i kinda agree that those who voted for bush dont have as mush room to complain, but it was impossible to forsee the complications that he would face as president, and his reaction to them, so its not as cut and dry as it may seem.

It's pretty cut and dry if you ask me.
eveyr one of civilians are expendable. For the time that we are alive and as long as we remain american citizens, they have to protect us from harm and that's it. but once we're dead that's one less person to worry about.

Bush doesn't have to give a damn about us.
As Hobbs would say: all people are selfish evil murderous bastards just trying to get ahead in life.
Bush is trying to get ahead in my life by doing nothing and getting paid lots of money for it. Although he's one talented guy. To look retarded that often all the time. . . .

if every civilian is expandable, then why did we go to war with afghanistan in retaliation for 9/11? and i agree that our slain troops arent given the respect that they deserve (i assume you were implying this), but this is mostly due to political and even celebrity left-wing bastards who have nothing better to do than bash our government and our troops, which, no matter what you tell, DOES get our troops killed.

oil. Only reason why we're still in the middle east. I was watched the datbe tonight and santorum basically said this.

our troops shouldn't even be int he middle east if you ask me. but that's a whole seperate thing if you ask me.

gas stations are private indsutries. government oculd create gas stations that sell gas at a cheaper price. Gas station prices are not contolled by the government. The US has a fre market capital. people can sell and buy whatever they want at any price.

exactly! but if the US was stealing oil from countries weve "attacked" in the middle-east then we would have a larger supply of crude oil, thus (according to the law of supply and demand) have lower gasoline prices. while companies can sell gas at any price they please, if they want to stay in business they will be competetive and sell it as low as possible (while still making a nice little profit of course).
